So using an adorable digistamp from AiFactory, this is my card for this weeks challenge. The challenge is to use 5 embellishments on your creation and believe it or not, I had a little trouble doing this!
Depending on how you count, I have either 5 or 6 (I count the two ribbons as one, 3 brads, and one photo holder...so it's six if you count the two ribbons as two). Details: M Just chillin DP, AiF image, nesties, copics, Ranger Blue Jean ink, brads, ribbon, computer generated sentiment.
Challenges in this card include:
I love this new digi set and wanted to make just one more card. It doesn't fit the AiF challenge but this set really is adorable. As a matter of fact, you can win this entire set by entering this week's challenge over at AiF Challenge Blog.
This card uses AiF digistamp, M's Cheeky Collection, Michael's $1 acrylic stamps, nesties, Stampin' Up cardstock, copics' 3D dots.
Challenges this card meets:
I hope you will check out the rest of the DT blogs this week for more inspiration using these digistamps: Angie, Erin, Carole, Fink, and Kerry. Oh, I must mention there is an awesome blow fish in this set! I guess I just thought that was important because we saw a HUGE one at the aquarium recently.

TCC, colored with copics, cut, and adhered with 3D dots. The Feature Friday challenge is to use only one DP, button(s), and ribbon. I thought to dress-up the one and only DP, I would zig-zag stitch around the edges.
- You give my heart wings
- Your love makes my heart flutter
- You make my heart soar
I do hope you will stop by The Character Cafe to play along with this weeks challenge. Also, check out the rest of the DT creations. Their blogs are on the right-----> and they are super talented!
BTW, this card is going to be from Bean to her Grandma. My ma loves my cards and I know she will appreciate it even more with scribbles and finger prints on the inside.

The DP happens to have lace already built in! But I thought to be fair, I'd throw in some real lace. I only had off white and couldn't stand how it looked, so I pulled out a red copic and got coloring. It was taking a little while to dry so I used my heat gun to speed it along. The image is AiF - isn't she adorable? The sentiment is computer generated, and the wonderful layout is MojoMonday.
I can't wait for the day when Bean looks through her keepsake box when she's older and realized how much I think of her daily.
Anyway, I hope you will head over to AiF to enter the challenge to win this digistamp for yourself.

gettin' good at telling him exactly what I want ;)
quiero Moo-cho (a play on the word mucho) = I love you a lot.
Here's some details: digistamp from Softpencil (her Etsy shop, her AiF shop), sewing, DCWV the Sweet Stack (patterned CS), Copics, computer generated sentiment, G red glitter, Doodlecharms cricut heart cut at 1" and 1.5" (inside). I actually cut the larger heart first and it didn't look good on the front, but I didn't want to waste it so I put it inside.
This also fits the following challenges:
- Pile It On - challenge 29 Anything Digital
- Softpencil - challenge 13 glitter/sparkle (my butterfly)
- Embellish Magazine - Hearts and color combo red/black/pink
- Splitcoaststampers - SC261 layout
Now I have to make something special for Bean. Maybe something with candy.
